the animals in the forest laugh at angry horse. - is red hawk so weak that angry horse can do as he wishes? or is angry horse obeying red hawk's commands? - red hawk not like bring white child here. - then why do you keep her here? let me take her away. - red hawk no more tell what do. red hawk old. no more fight. angry horse not old. better angry horse be chief. - always the young buffalo wishes to kill the old buffalo and take his place. and he does kill the old buffalo because he has youth and strength. but has he the wisdom to lead the herd? to keep it out of danger? i say angry horse has not the wisdom. he cannot be the chief of a tribe that wishes to live in peace. i will fight angry horse to prove he is not worthy.

2:34 am
he's blasting up there. the indians hear it and think the mountain is talking. - perhaps he's closing up the passages that he and cassidy found. if he plans to put cattle on that land, they might wander into some of those old tunnels. - the ancient tunnels of spirit mountain. i heard about them when i was a boy. the indians don't trespass on spirit mountain. - but reece and cassidy do. and that's where they are right now. - the ranchers are doing just as we feared. they're gathering now for a strike at the indian village. - that plenty bad, kemo sabay. - kilgore has gone to spirit mountain for dynamite. i'm going after him, tonto. you take mrs. kilgore and her daughter to the mission church.
